Sunday 30 November 2008


  •    That feeling of uselessness and self-pity
             will disappear.
  •     We will be able to risk failure
               to develop new hidden talents.
  •                 Where once we felt despair,
                        we will experience a newfound hope.

Onwards and keep on liviing!
Tonight at I will:

  • pick up medication
  • walk doggy
  • spend time with my mother
  • more major paper sorting
  • check up on laundry
  • eat small but healthy dinner
  • look after my teeth, face, hands and feet
  • start on bills

Sunday check-in from movingalong

This has been an interesting week.

I had some sadness and also some tiny triumphs.

I have started a goals notebook.

I have begun doing some writing for my sponsor in another program.

I've worked on some tasks I've been avoiding.

Acknowledging here that I have much more to do.

Sammy ci :: 1:20pm

Hello Hello!

I'm back from church. The plan for today is to do some dusting and finish decorating the house. My eyes are doing something weird right I'm losing my vision? This just started a few minutes ago, and already i'm having a really tough time reading my computer screen. My mother thinks i'm getting a migraine...which might mean the decorating will have to wait for another weekend.... I can just hope for the best, i guess!

Recycler CI 1pm EST

Hi Pro Buddies!

This morning I moved around items so that I can prep an area for painting. Ate breakfast, took high blood pressure medicine, and did kitchen swishies. Started a load of laundry to wash. Went to mid-morning activity, did 2 errands, and bought groceries. Ate lunch, came over to rental condo & put washed clothes in dryer.

With it still raining outside, I won't take any large items over to the new condo; maybe a few small items in a plastic bag. I'll probably sort through some items at one or both condos. My gym bag is all ready for this week, so I don't need to do that. I need to write an email to at least one friend. Otherwise, just putter around.

Have a great day, everyone! :)


Thank you, gals & guys, for being here! :)

Journey 9:30

good morning!   I need to get off my butt and sort laundry and bathe dogs.   First I need to call the Evil Slut aka my ex-sister-in-law.   Might as well get that over with.

Falcon Sunday CI

Hi all,

Time to regroup and check the list of things I was hoping to get done this weekend:

  • Call cat sitter - got the number - MUST do this today
  • Wrap gift for G - done!
  • Visit with L. - done!
  • Help V. with move - done!
  • Find insurance info (calendar? notes?)
  • Do online Xmas shopping - make list - done!  order flowers - done! look up tickets - partly done peruse catalogs
  • Change sheets
  • Finish laundry - mostly done
  • Call about apartments
  • Pay bills
  • Figure out next action on retirement thingie
  • Figure out next actions for retirement plan
  • Take walk/exercise (Fri.)- done!
  • Go to Sat. class - done!
  • Go to Sun. class - will do this morning
  • Tidy apartment- done!
  • Run through music
  • Get groceries - done!
  • Make lunches for next week - done!
  • Send info to colleges - done!

Not doing too bad!  I'm glad that for once I got started early in the week and paced myself, rather than suddenly realizing on Sunday that nothing's done yet.

To do today:  Go to class, go to bank, get prescription filled.  CALL CAT SITTER.  Get ready for tomorrow - take apt. info to work.  The big thing for this afternoon/evening is to plan the rest of my Xmas shopping.

It's grey and rainy here.  Nice day to curl up & go back to bed for the rest of the day. . . sigh.  Wink  



Falcon CI Sun. afternoon

Well -- went to class, did the prescription and the bank on the way back, and it took longer than expected.

Next up: make & eat lunch NOW -- quit fiddling around with email, etc. -- I can do that later when I'm not hungry & dehydrated!


Falcon CI - called the cat sitter

She wasn't there, so I left a message.  But at least I FINALLY remembered to make the call -- don't know why I was having such a hard time remembering!

Time to eat dinner soon.  Then I can do some Xmas gift ordering, and maybe do a little paperwork if there's time before bed.  Also need to call K tonight.


Falcon CO Sunday

Well, I called K., but decided not to start on the Xmas ordering until I have a chance to check out some shops tomorrow (which means I'll need to do it on Tuesday evening.)

I treated myself to an evening of reading, instead.  Didn't start on the paperwork, either, but that's o.k.; I still feel good about the things I got done this weekend, and it was nice to end with a little relaxation time.

Good night!


CL ci

8am catch up here. dont have too much time for that, tho. 5 min?
8:02 (2min) : sry guys i didnt feel up to posting. Last night got me down. I felt guilty for using these tools.
8:40 (38min) : did MIT 1, unfortunately hated it the whole time.
9:00 (20min) : did more MIT 1 and some other productive things. But i did not like it, not one little bit. Now schedule demands that i do more. i dont like that either.


CL ci grateful

(written 8am 12/1 ie next day)
Thank you HP for getting me thru yesterday. I felt so down, yet somehow managed to get a very difficult, very long task done. I didnt have the strength, but somehow i got started, and then some of my strength returned.


Convalaria trying again, 14.50 , 19.15

 Thank you movingalong for the lovely day starter.

The day has not been what i have hoped for so far.
I was hoping that after the crisis I would be able to start a new life in recovery.  Wink
The consequences of my previous procrastination will be what they will be. I will handle them with the help of my therapist and my HP.
I have done some major paper desqualaring but nothin else today, and I am still not medicated or dressed.
Never fear! The day is not over yet!
So the goals for the rest of today:

  • morning routine in the afternoon
  • 15 minutes tidy in every room and front and back garden. (use timer)
  • finish  4 classes of reports
  • cook something
  • walk doggy
  • call R
